Drummer Ed Thigpen passed away last Wednesday. He will no doubt be best remembered for his 7 year membership in the Oscar Peterson Trio. But Ed Thigpen recorded with a number of jazz all stars and in so doing earned the nickname Mr. Taste for his subtly swinging style and mastery of the brushes. After his relocation to Copenhagen in 1972, Thigpen became the drummer of choice for touring American jazz artists while balancing his performance schedule with an active career as an educator and clinician. Ed Thigpen drums all recordings in this very long set and tribute to another Jazz great who has passed on … Ed Thigpen.
